Janet H. Burroughs

Janet H. Burroughs, 76, of Jackson passed away on Friday, July 22, 2022 at CentraState Medical Center in Freehold Township.  She was born in Staten Island, NY and was a lifelong resident of Howell before settling in Jackson ten years ago.  A kind and compassionate woman, Janet loved cooking, cracking jokes, and  caring for her home and family.  She enjoyed communing with nature by planting in her garden and taking long walks outdoors—especially on the beach.  Janet liked shopping and taking yearly trips with her family to Lancaster, PA.  Those who knew and loved her will always remember her as a simple, sweet woman who was never afraid to say what was on her mind. 

Janet was predeceased by her parents; her sister, Doris Walling; her brother, David Adamavage; and her daughter, Tammy L. Kennedy.  She is survived by her beloved husband of 47 years, George Burroughs; her daughter, Jennifer L. Meyer; her two granddaughters; her siblings, Charles Adamavage, Jr., Charlene Cox, and Lorraine Clauges; her sisters-in-law, Irene Syers and Charlotte Adamavage; many loving nieces and nephews; her faithful canine companions, Pebbles and Baylyn; and her faithful feline companion, Odyssey. 

Relatives and friends are invited to attend her memorial gathering at Clayton & McGirr Funeral Home, 100 Elton Adelphia Road (Route 524), Freehold Township on Saturday, July 30, 2022 from 1:00 to 4:30 PM followed by her 4:30 PM memorial service.
